What would you grade this 89 CC?

Just curious, seller claims its au+ Proof. No clue what that means and these coins with huge jumps in value between grades always make me nervous for the bidders.

    See my comment on the eBay highjacked accounts. This seller apparently has been highjacked and definitely does not hold title to many of the coins listed.

    I don’t know whether the description has been edited, but currently, it says:
    The coin looks AU at a minimum and PL, as well. BUT, the images aren’t nearly good enough to determine what issues the coin might have.

    What's with the descriptions with a buy it now price with two steps to follow. Also, all his feedback appears to be in French with the Seller supposedly in Fullerton California.

    A lot of feedback is in foreign languages, so why is it in California? I think I'll pass

    It looks it has a rim issue at 8 k on the reverse. It has a smaller one at 2k.

    Typical manipulated images as Great Southern has been known for. Run don't walk away!

    This coin is would be a good deal at this price regardless of the grade as long as it’s genuine, but the bidding will go much higher than this unless it gets nuked. I’m actually blown away by the price guides for these, thousands graded yet an xf45 is 5k 🫣

    Edit for posterity: at the time of this comment, the price was $560

    The date and mint mark position seem to match VAM-5.
    But a not a lot else can be determined from those images.

    It's a fraudulent listing from a hijacked account.

    Grade or authenticity don't matter the listing will be removed. ;)
